    One of Those Days!

    Did you ever want to just scream? Glad I noticed this before I put the borders on.

    NOOOOOO! I bet you noticed it when you took the picture to put it on QB? Aren't you glad you decided to post a work in progress picture and not the finished quilt?

    I must be blind....can't find your problem.

    OK, I really had to study it but I did locate it. I would call that artists interpretation and go with it.

    I did a very similar thing, but didn't notice until it was all quilted and bound! Only 2 things left to do: ignore it and hope no one notices, or rip out the offending piece and sew it back in. Yep, I did the 2nd choice. Wasn't too hard, but it sure taught me a lesson to look twice before sewing!

    It happened last night when I was getting tired. I had to rip and re-sew three times on that row, then decided to call it a night. But what makes me really mad is that I didn't notice it this morning when I added the last two rows. Can't bring myself to get out the seam ripper right now.

    A bit of targeted and localized surgery, and it will all be better.

    It never ceases to amaze me how easily things can go awry, no matter how much care is taken, walking the blocks from the design wall to the sewing machine.

    When it happens to me, I just want to scream.

    On another note, I like the setting you used for your blocks. Very striking.

    It took me a while to find it. Aggravating, but not too far to correct it.

    I must say, I went over everything and couldn't find a THING wrong. Until someone said look at the light diagonals. Well, I almost didn't find that little piddley thing . No way would I change that! I love it.

    I had to really study to see what the problem was. When I finally spotted it I smiled! I kind of like a little something special in a quilt - LOL. (If it were mine I would have to change it to go the right direction though!)

    I did not see it till someone said to look at the bright colored....more proof that we are our own worst critic.

    It took me awhile to find it, too. If the pic was posted without saying something was wrong, I never would have seen it.
    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    I ALMOST didn't notice it! lol Almost. At least you caught it in time, so not too big of a fix. Pretty quilt!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Oh, no! You poor dear! I always seem to catch my mistakes by taking a photo (while it's still a WIP as Tartan mentioned).

    I guess we've all been there. I noticed it on a quilt that I finished quilting yesterday. I'm leaving it. The offending block is a log cabin block sewn in like yours, sort of turned around. But it's way bigger and is quilted with feathers. Picking out the feathers is bad enough, but then to get the feathers to fit together after.....no way. I'm not that skilled and I am not ripping out all the feathers in all six large blocks.

    My mom called that an Amish error: she said the Amish believe that perfection is God's thing. So they purposely make an small mistake in every quilt, so as not to offend God. (or something like that) Since their visit to Amish country several years ago, "Amish error" have been our family's "my bad."
